A Good Day For Cooking

It got up to 73° by 2:30 pm yesterday afternoon and I had the house open while Brad was gone to his appointment. He insisted that there was no need for me to go with him since he would be waiting for a bit until he was ready to leave. In the end it didn’tContinue reading “A Good Day For Cooking”

A Little More Rain

It’s cloudy, 43° and feels like 39° outside this morning. Looks like we are in for a morning of showers. But that’s just fine because…have I mentioned that we have hay? And it appears the neighbor hauled his cows and bull off to another piece of property. At least that’s what he says. We’ll see.Continue reading “A Little More Rain”

December Is Here

It’s the third day of December. For some reason it doesn’t seem like December to me but I’ll probably catch up with the rest of the world at some point. It’s a gorgeous morning here. The sun will be cresting the top of the trees soon and it will be partly cloudy and in theContinue reading “December Is Here”

The Simple Things In Life

I ended my day yesterday evening with two fingers of The Glenlivet on the rocks. It’s a simple pleasure that I indulge in from time to time. I prefer the 12 yr old single malt but this particular bottle is impossible to find anymore. Brad happened to stumble onto this at a local liquor store…Continue reading “The Simple Things In Life”

Bipolar Texas Weather

It was in the low 70’s yesterday, sunny and windy. By bedtime it was 42° and the wind was rattling the window screens. The low was 32° last night and it will stay below 50° today. This will be a great day to stay indoors and work on my knitting. I need to do somethingContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather”

Done. Done. And Done.

Done! The beginning is now grafted to the ending and it needs a soak in Eucalan and then blocked. I have another set of six mini skeins for another cowl and I might as well cast that on to keep on hand for simple, on-the-go knitting. I enjoyed this project a lot and look forwardContinue reading “Done. Done. And Done.”

So Close

What is it about the last inch or so of a project that seems to take longer than you think it will? Sigh. I will finish this thing. This afternoon. No more interruptions. What an interesting day it’s been and it’s not even 1 pm yet! First of all Fancy Nancy Pelosi is not seekingContinue reading “So Close”

Another Project Almost Finished

I had hoped to have finished the cowl by this evening, but I took most of the day off from knitting for the sake of my joints. I remembered the bottle of ibuprofen and took a dose of it a little while ago and then picked back up and started the last section of theContinue reading “Another Project Almost Finished”

Another Rainy Day! Yay!

I drove in to pick up a grocery order first thing this morning and stopped by the coffee shop for breakfast croissants on the way home. It was just beginning to drizzle a fine mist when I left for town and it’s still overcast and damp out. We need it. I hope we get aContinue reading “Another Rainy Day! Yay!”

Finally! A Finished Project!

I cast these off the needle last night. The ends are woven in, they’ve been soaked in Eucalan and are on the sock blockers overnight. I plan on wearing them tomorrow. I’ve got quite a bit of ribbing to do on the purple socks… …and I’ve put these socks on separate needles to finish theContinue reading “Finally! A Finished Project!”
